Question:
I had cataract surgery and lens replacement, with distance vision in left and near in right. Only problem I have is with distance vision while driving. With my reading eye open my vision is distracted by white lines appearing to bend into vision. Any remedy for this?

Answer:
Even though you have monovision, you can still get glasses for specific tasks. If the blur from the reading eye is due only to the refractive error then glasses for driving should solve this.
